Property development

 

We act for developers, owners of land to be sold for development and businesses looking for premises on new developments. We have advised on some of the most high profile schemes in the region, both for residential housing and for offices and other commercial buildings. The team is recommended by independent legal directories as amongst the best lawyers in East Anglia for work of this type.

 

We have experience of all stages of development, including the identification of potential sites, site assembly, funding, acquisition, negotiations with planners, construction agreements, plot sales and leases.

 

Examples of our work include:

 

Acting for a house building company on the acquisition of development sites across Suffolk, funding those developments with joint venture partners, dealings with planners and plot sales;

Acting for the developers of a local business park, acquiring and funding the site, selling off plots and advising on construction agreements with buyers;

Acting for several different research or scientific businesses taking new premises on the Cambridge Science Park, advising on construction agreements, agreements for lease and lease;

Acting for farmers with planning permission to develop farm land, introducing them to potential developers and then negotiating the sale of the land.
